AR-15 Identification

Postby MessEleven » Tue Dec 04, 2012 3:21 pm

Is there a good source to identify the different types of AR-15's. I don't know very much about them, but I'd love to build one in the future and need an education. Example: in NVISN's thread about his (hot) new AR, SR9 referred to an "A2 build." No clue what that means.

Anyone?

I am 99% on this. The A2 is in reference to the configuration of the build. An "A2" carbine (16") in its pure form has an upper with an integrated carry handle and a 4 position stock.

A2 can also mean an traditional 20" rifle stock with a traditional stock.

My A2 build will be a 20" rifle in case you were wondering.
